The Men's👩 Olympic football⚽ tournament kicked off last night with a match against Brazil and South Africa at the Olympic stadium🏟 in Rio de Janeiro.
The hosts were held to a goalless draw😟 by South Africa, in spite of playing against 10-men for the last half hour😯. Gabriel Jesus⚡ or the next Neymar hit the post while 'the original'⭐ forced a couple of good saves from the opposition keeper. 💪Mothobi Mvala was sent off after picking up a second yellow card📒 for a foul near the half-way line. Brazil had most of the chances but were unable to score past the bus🚌 from Cape Town. South Africa did look dangerous on the counter on a couple of occasions, though.The 2nd game of Group A ended in a stalemate as well😐. It was an entertaining game with a flurry of chances for both teams😃. A combination of posts, crossbars and keepers meant that the teams had to share the spoils.
Mexico took the lead through Oribe Peralta⚽ before Gnarby⚽ equalised for the Germans. Pizarro⚽ hit back to restore the lead before a late header from Matthias Ginter⚽ restored parity.Goncalo Paciencia⚽ scored a stunner😍 from outside the box and Geronimo Rulli's⚽ late goal sealed the match for the Portuguese.
